  • Good lord, that was a poor game. A point apiece was probably about right. The report and reaction will be online soon. Thanks for sticking with us.

  • Full-time: Stoke 0-0 West Brom

  • Great chance for Stoke as Jones takes a high ball with his chest before prodding a shot straight at Foster. That's surely the last chance.

  • I can tell you right now who I'm going to give the man of the match to: Ben Foster. He's dominated his box against a serious aerial bombardment and has spread confidence throughout his defence. Meanwhile, Stoke have another free-kick, this time 20 yards out, after Ridgewell felled Walters. Here comes Adam again ... but he hits the wall again.

  • .... close call! Adam's free-kick squirmed to Ryan Shawcross, who drew a superb save from Ben Foster, but it didn't matter because the Stoke defender was flagged for offside. As you were.

  • Now then. Chance for Stoke with a free-kick, dead centre, 25 yards out...

  • Final change for West Brom as Marc-Antoine Fortune replaces James Morrison.

  • Odemwingie tries his luck with a shot from distance but Begovic was right behind it. Up at the other end, Adam has just steered a side-footed volley embarrassingly over the bar. Are we going to get a goal in the last 10 minutes? I can't see it at this rate.

  • Great chance for Stoke now as Marc Wilson heads narrowly wide from a left-wing corner. It's absolutely hosing it down at the Britannia right now. Awful conditions.

  • Close call for West Brom as Long switches the play from left to right, where Mulumbu takes a touch and lets a right-foot shot from 22 yards fly. It started out on target but swerved high and wide at the death. Decent effort.

  • Shane Long replaces Lukaku for West Brom.

  • Charlie Adam replaces Jerome for Stoke.

  • It's West Brom asking all the questions at the moment and while they are looking more penetrative than Stoke did in the first half, they are struggling to create clear-cut chances.

  • Disappointing passage from West Brom just now. They broke three on three but, for some reason, Odemwingie decided to check and play a square pass. From there, the visitors passed the ball too slowly and the opportunity eventually ended with Brunt firing a lame shot wide. Odemwingie should have continued to move it forward at pace.

  • The game has slowed back down again now - not really helped by the substitutions. But as I write, Odemwingie fires a left-foot shot goalwards from 20 yards. Begovic saw it early, though, and got down well to make the save.

  • Peter Odemwingie replaces Jerome Thomas for West Brom.

  • One thing I have noticed today is Ben Foster's total control of his box. Any ball lingering in the air has been authoritatively claimed by the West Brom keeper, who has looked really solid.

  • Jones replaces Peter Crouch.

  • Great chance for West Brom as a deflected free-kick falls to Morrison on the right, whose cross is deflected by Begovic on to the face of Lukaku, who then rebounds it narrowly over the bar. Major let-off for Stoke. Kenwyne Jones is about to come on.
